From the moment the lights dim, it’s clear comedian Judy Gold’s mother is going to be one of the highlights of this one-woman show. Mama Gold orders the audience — largely composed of Jewish senior citizens who laugh uproariously at any mention of Barbra Streisand and click their tongues at the word Holocaust — to turn off their cell phones and listen to her daughter Judith. For the next 80 minutes, Judy tells her life story (often via reenacted conversations with her mother), from figuring out she’s gay to the birth of her two sons with former partner Wendy. So where do the 25 questions come in? Occasionally and awkwardly. The answers, culled from years of interviews with Jewish women around the country — which Gold acts out — too often feel forced. Worse yet, they take precious time away from the remarkable Gold. And her relationship with her own mother is more interesting than all the other questions combined.
